Custom follower grey face issue.


Recommended Posts

I have a custom follower that I made ages ago and have been tinkering with on and off. Today I tired packing all her assets up into a rar so that I can back her up and use her on installations.  I pack all the files up including the esp and the facegen meshes/textures. 


The problem came when I tested the rar out in a mood manager. She works fine and has all the right dialogue lines and behaviours. The only problem is she has a grey face despite me including the facegen files.


Any idea's? if I unistall the mod and go back to the original manually installed files she shows up fine.

If the facegen files are not the cause of the problem and you happen to have the infamous "dark face bug":


I discovered that that happens when the VRAM of your graphics card is full and doesn't empty itself correctly. I have ENBoost installed which comes with a hotkey to empty the VRAM when necessary (default F4). Whenever the grey (or dark) face bug occurs, I press it and everything's back to normal again.

The facegen files work fine. I copied them from my install where they work to an archive.

I also dont think its a vram issue as my card has 4gb vram and she has the bug as soon as I start the game.


I think it might be esp related so im going to tear it apart and have a look now.
